Save money: we don't need to vote on it

What is the justification for spending tax dollars to ask voters whether the village should study ways to save money? [Consolidation vote headed to the ballot, News, Aug. 1]. Duh. Of course we're all in favor of studying ways to save money. 

Here's a money-saving idea: Don't put it on the ballot. Just study it and if an actual plan is formulated that saves money and requires voter approval, put the actual plan to a vote. 

Whatever the results of this proposed vote, which will be essentially meaningless, you can be sure the result will be mischaracterized to serve someone's purpose — like, say, "Voters overwhelmingly support consolidating government units."
